I’m just making this marquetry to guild casket. It’s motive from Jean-Baptiste-Charles Claudot’s painting. I’m using burning to crate shadows.

Thanks. I’m using method “piece by piece”. It’s simple cut veneer. Pillars are made of elm, other is walnut and similar textured woods. I don’t know what it is.

That’s a nice piece of work. It looks almost like a painting.

thanks. I think it could be done by everybody with feeling to it and with patience. It’s not that hard. You only have to play with texture and shadows.

Looks wonderful. An excellent choice of veneers for this particular piece in my opinion.
